At a meeting Tuesday, the Pendleton City Council unanimously adopted an $80.1 million budget for the 2018-2019 fiscal year.

The budget includes a $16.5 million for water and sewer projects, $1.3 million for street projects, $500,000 for a new fire engine, and $100,000 for a 22-passenger bus.

The city has not disclosed how much money it expects in marijuana tax revenue, but given that the city council is earmarking 50 percent of revenue for street repair, one can deduce that the city is expecting $200,000 over the next fiscal year.

The fiscal year runs from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019.
